An unidentified aircraft has reportedly bombarded a base belonging to Turkish military forces in Syria’s northern province of Raqqah as the troops are conducting a military campaign in the area against US-sponsored Kurdish militants from the so-called People's Protection Units (YPG).
According to reports, Russia’s RT Arabic television news network, citing a report published by online Kurdish news service Hawar, said the unknown plane conducted an airstrike on the outskirts of Ayn Issa town on Thursday evening.
The report, however, did not provide any further information about the extent of damage caused.
The Tal Abyad region in northern Syria, where the town of Ayn Issa is located, has been the scene of bitter clashes between the Turkish forces and the YPG militants.
Turkey views the YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). The PKK has been seeking an autonomous Kurdish region in Turkey since 1984.
On October 9, 2019, Turkey launched a cross-border invasion of northeastern Syria in an attempt to push Kurdish militants affiliated with the YPG away from its borders.
Damascus views the Turkish military presence on Syrian soil as an attack on the Arab country's sovereignty.
Separately, a convoy of dozens of US military trucks has carried tons of grain from Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah to the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq.
Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), citing local sources, reported that 32 military vehicles loaded with wheat crops from silos of Tal Alou village in al-Ya'rubiyah region headed towards the Iraqi territories on Thursday after passing through al-Waleed border crossing.
Militants affiliated with the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) escorted the convoy until it arrived at the border crossing.
This comes as US forces also continue to smuggle crude oil from Hasakah to Iraq.
The US military has stationed forces and equipment in northeastern Syria, with the Pentagon claiming that the troop deployment is aimed at preventing the oilfields in the area from falling into the hands of Daesh terrorists.
